Stoke vs Arsenal 19 August 2017: EPL Preview and Predictions

Stoke City will be at home as they play Arsenal in the second game of the English Premier League season. Both sides will want to get three points in this game and that makes this contest an exciting one. We are expecting a free flowing game here and that is good for the game.

Arsenal had a dramatic first game but it showed that they can score goals. Lacazette was an absolute beast and the likes of Welbeck and Ozil played well around him. We can expect a lot of the same in this game since they will be looking to play a similar way to the way which got them a win. This game will not be easy for Arsenal since Stoke are a decent team and the Gunners will not be in North London.

Stoke City have added former Real Madrid winger, Jese. This will give the team a big boost in the attacking department. He is unlikely to start in this game since he has just arrived but he might make an impact appearance from the bench. This will not be an easy game for the home team but I expect them to put up a good fight against one of the best teams in the Premier League.

All in all, I think that Arsenal will win this game and as a result, I think betting on the result is the best option. We are getting a decent price on this bet and as a result, it makes sense to place this wager. I think this also might be a high-scoring game so both teams to score and over 2.5 goals are two understandable bets.
